By Jean Piaget (auth.), Willis F. Overton, Jeanette McCarthy Gallagher (eds.)

From a casual workforce of a dozen college and graduate scholars at Temple collage, the Jean Piaget Society grew in seven years to 500 contributors who've pursuits within the software of genetic epistemology to their very own disciplines and professions. on the outset Piaget recommended the concept that of a society which bore his identify and awarded a huge tackle on equilibration on the society's first symposium in may well, 1971. Had he no longer performed so the society might without doubt have remained a small parochial workforce, like such a lot of others during the kingdom, attracted to Piaget and his idea. With the encouragement of Genevans and the management of its first 4 presidents, Lois Macomber, Barbara Press­ eisen, Marilyn Appel, and John Mickelson, the society undertook a couple of courses to gather and disseminate the result of scholarly paintings in genetic epistemology. specific emphasis was once positioned upon functions of Piaget's concept to developmental psychology, philos­ ophy, and schooling. the sort of courses was once the book of an annual sequence at the improvement of realizing, of which this quantity is the 1st. In 1973, the society requested Hans Furth with the help of Willis Overton and Jeanette Gallagher to begin and plan a sequence of yearbooks with the outcome that during addition to this quantity, a moment quantity on schooling was once commissioned, and a 3rd one at the decalage factor was once planned.

Sample text

But on the general coordination of the actions. We have already seen that, beginning at the sensorimotor level, actions are coordinated with one another under general forms of combination, seriation, correspondences, and intersections. To the extent to which these general coordinations apply also to particular interiorized actions they become reversible. More precisely, any coordination of actions, like any biological coordination, tends to maintain equilibration by a series of regulations and self-regulations.

The point of departure of this knowledge, therefore, is neither 5 nor a but the interaction proper to the action itself. It is from this dialectic interaction +z that the object is bit by bit discovered in its objective properties by a" decentration" which frees knowledge of its subjective illusions. It is from this same interaction +Z that the subject, by discovering and conquering the object, organizes his actions into a coherent system that constitutes the operations of his intelligence and his thought.

This reversibility leads to systematic seriation and then brings on the immediate understanding of the transitivity A < C, etc. , unsystematically, for lack of advance coordination of his successive actions. In this case, if he is shown two sticks A < B and A The Role of Action in the Development of Thinking 37 is concealed, and if he finds that B < C, he is unable to deduce that A < C and he needs to be shown A in order to compare it with C. Experience is therefore necessary in order to gain this logical truth!
